BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 P.M.) – Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi stated during a press conference on Tuesday that the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights is Syrian territory.

“The Golan Heights are occupied Syrian territory. International law is clear on that. It has to be treated as such,” Safadi told reporters at his press conference.

“Therefore, our position is that Israel needs to withdraw from that territory in the framework of a peace agreement,” he added.

Safadi’s comments were in reference to Israel’s latest attempt to push the U.S. to recognize the occupied Golan Heights as Israeli territory.

Despite Syria’s suspension from the organization, the Arab League maintains that the Golan Heights is currently occupied by Israel.

The Arab League, along with UN resolutions 242 and 497, recognize the Golan Heights as Syrian territory.

from whom did the arabs steal the land from?

Yeah, Right

Yeah, Right

“from whom did the arabs steal the land from?” The territory of the Golan Heights was allocated to the French as part of the Mandated territory of Syria. The Turks agreed to that allocation via the Treaty of Lausanne, and the League of Nations agreed to that allocation when they voted in favour of that Mandate. The entire point of that Mandate was for the French to hold that territory “in trust” until the Syrians were able to become an independent state, and the ONLY way that the French could fulfill the terms of that Mandate is by handing that… Read more »

Yeah, Right

Yeah, Right

“So Jordan should be returned to Israel since the Hashemites’ stole it from the Rothschilds’ who bought the full Palestine region?” Article 27 of the Mandate for Palestine says that you are wrong: “In the territories lying between the Jordan and the eastern boundary of Palestine as ultimately determined, the Mandatory shall be entitled, with the consent of the Council of the League of Nations, to postpone or withhold application of such provisions of this mandate as he may consider inapplicable to the existing local conditions, and to make such provision for the administration of the territories as he may… Read more »

I haven’t read more illogical explanation a long time ago. Fact that you call the region Palestine from the very beginning contradicts the whole your sentence…

Damascus was founded by Aram, the grandson of Noah = a Jew.
Be happy that Israel doesn’t reclaim what YHWH promised to Abraham : everything between the Nile and the Euphrates…
Anyway, just do DNA tests in this area and you end with an ethnic Jewish majority, like it or not… Both biologists and historians know this for long, despite propaganda tries to hide this fact and despite caliph Uthman burnt all libraries including the great Alexandria one to mask the illegitimacy of Arab invasions…

I thought you stated several times in your postings that you were an atheist and despised believers. As such a non-existent God for you cannot hand out earthly lands. Fail on your part

Poner en conocimiento a través de las redes sociales que se debe cumplir las resoluciones de la ONU o es que no sirve este organismo.
Denunciar ante el mundo que EE.UU. e Israel no respeta las resoluciones de la ONU.
